Arkansas mother captures the terrifying moment tornado rips apart her neighbourhood

A mother captured the emotional and terrifying moment as she watched a tornado rip through her neighbour's house, and then assessing the damage in Fort Smith, Arkansas.

The mother ran to take cover with her husband and five kids on May 18, saying: "I tried to comfort the kids who were crying and terrified, when I myself was scared and trying to be strong for my kids."

She found large trees knocked down onto the neighbours house, barely missing their home as her husband ran to check on the neighbour where emotions ran high as this "is when the panic hit me and just how close to a direct hit we came."
